Streetscape Design and Revitalization

We dedicate a large portion of our practice to improvement of the public realm. Following this focus, we see the design of streetscapes, urban plazas, and other civic spaces as opportunities to encourage healthy and active public life, the cornerstone of today's successful cities. We understand the design complexity of urban streets and how their physical elements - paving, planting, lighting, fountains, furniture, public art and architecture - all combine to promote engaging social life, pedestrian comfort, and urban vitality. We are always sensitive to the importance of maintenance and operating costs to the durability of our civic spaces. Sustainable stormwater management is a critical component of all our projects.
